Personal Statement

In the field of endocrine surgery, there are often many different solutions for a single problem. Treatment options for endocrine disorders need to be tailored to the individual patient’s history, preferences, and concerns, and no two patients are the same. My goal is to take a patient-centered approach to treating endocrine disorders with the best evidence-based practices, and provide patients with all of the available options to help them to make an informed decision about their care.
